bridge scandal tonight. chris christie's former campaign manager appears to be the subject of a federal criminal investigation. in a court filing, bill stepien's attorney says his client is in, quote, the throes of a criminal investigation, and that the feds have tried to contact stepien directly, saying that on january 17th, an fbi special agent called stepien's cell. shortly later, two assistant u.s. attorneys called stepien's lawyer. then in mid-february, an fbi agent along with the department of justice investigator paid a visit to stepien's home. we're also learning the u.s. attorney's office tried to contact former deputy chief of staff bridget kelly and her parents. both stepien and kelly were very close to christie, and they are the only two to publicly say they will not turn over any documents. so where is this investigation going next? joining me now, former u.s. attorney kendall coffey. kendall, thanks for your time tonight. >> hey, thanks for inviting me, reverend. >> a criminal investigation, what does that tell you, kendall? >> well, it tells you that they decided that the

of how democrats have responded to the chris christie bridge scandal. they say, you know, the media coverage that's been given to chris christie and the way he may or may not have abused his power is not that dissimilar from the irs and that the media, and democrats are letting president obama off the hook in the irs case. >> well, let me get back, again, back and forth. this news story, what is the substance now of the irs investigation? is this just part of a sort of a broad front effort to nail the president, whether it's irs, benghazi, or ukraine? or is there really some pay dirt that a legislator would find powerful? information they're getting? >> you know, that's what they're looking for. and when representative cummings came out, he said that, too, that they want to get to the bottom of what happened, how to reform things over there. you had lois lerner come out and essentially apologize as well. and there were some indications early on that she would actually cooperate in this hearing. i think that's why you saw representative issa get so sort of frustrated on his end becau
